Celebrity MasterChef 10 August 2022: Series 17 Episode 1 on BBC One 11

Celebrities from the world of music, sport, comedy, drama and show business are heading into the kitchen. The heat is on as Celebrity MasterChef returns to BBC One.

Over six weeks, John Torode and Gregg Wallace are putting their taste buds through a sensory assault course, discovering which celebrities have the palate and skill to chop, slice and sizzle their way to lifting the iconic Celebrity MasterChef trophy.

The five celebrities in the first heat are musician and TV judge Danny Jones, reality TV star Faye Winter, comedian Kae Kurd, media personality Nancy Dell’Olio and comedian Paul Chuckle.

Their first challenge is called Under the Cloche. In front of each celebrity is a cloche, underneath which is an ingredient. Each celebrity has a different ingredient and must create one dish showcasing that ingredient to demonstrate to the judges their potential. With nerves running high and just over an hour to create their dishes from scratch, the celebrities must think on their feet to impress the judges.

Next, it’s the Street Food Challenge. The celebrities are presented with a street food dish that is popular in Korea. They must taste it and try to identify the ingredients. Then, following not a recipe but their instincts, they must cook this classic national dish for themselves. Will their attempts impress, or will they fall short of the mark?

Then, in the final test of culinary creativity, the contestants are asked to prepare their Dinner Party Dish – something they would cook to impress if someone was coming round to eat. With only one hour to play with, the celebrities work furiously in a last attempt to prove themselves to the judges. At the end of this test, one of them will be going home.

Who can handle the pressure and show the judges they have the skills, creativity and flair to progress further in the competition?
